Also shortlisted in the Large Housing Development category is Royal Albert Wharf by Maccreanor Lavington architects and main contractors Galliford Try. Taylor Maxwell worked closely with Maccreanor Lavington over a number of years to design and develop a bespoke blend of facing bricks that would allude to the buildings of the area’s industrial past. This precise choice of unique brickwork, was ultimately named by the architects as the ‘Queens Dock Blend’. The project is also shortlisted in the Urban Regeneration category.
